Chelsea boss Frank Lampard frustrated after heavy loss at Manchester United

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard frustrated after heavy loss at Manchester United

Manchester United paid a world record fee for a defender to secure Maguire's services but he shone on debut as the Red Devils beat Chelsea 4-0.

"Early in the second half I didn't mind it - and then two mistakes for their second and third goals - it's much easier for them to play at 3-0 up". Yet, having stated in the summer it was time for a new "challenge", Pogba suggested he could still leave the club.

"It's a great start for myself and obviously the team", he told Sky Sports.

Just for the sake of avoiding misunderstandings, Pogba means the press will always attempt to put a question mark on his future whether he says he will stay or not.

Cesar Azpilicueta claims Chelsea "deserved more" from their trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Sunday, but feels the team will "come back stronger" after the defeat. "I always want to win matches and I always give my best when I'm on the pitch". "I always give it everything".

He added: "I can't drag people out of the medical room to play". It is what I love - it is my job.

United States men's national team star Christian Pulisic impressed for Chelsea in preseason action, but the 20-year-old will face his first real test in the Premier League in the opening weekend's marquee match.

Premier League fantasy: Sign up now! Rashford also struck a first-half penalty before Anthony Martial and Daniel James, on his debut, completed the scoring. "They pinned us back and created chances, but we settled a few nerves [in the second half]". "We should be in the lead at the break", said Lampard, who took over from Maurizio Sarri in the close season. We were better in possession and in terms of chances. We were so comfortable in the first half, so loads of lessons for us. "That has been there for a while now - since before this season", he said.

But while the crowd celebrated their new-look side's flawless start, it was evident until Martial made it 2-0 in the 65th that there is still much work to be done to get United anywhere near the level of title favourites Manchester City and Liverpool.

"Let's be clear: with the injuries we have at the minute, with the fact we couldn't bring in players, this is going to be a work in progress to a degree. We moved it nicely second half and our front three are so risky on the break", added the centre-half.

"As I call him [Maguire] - "the Beast", said Pogba. He is a leader.
